Historylinks Museum is a local history museum in Dornoch. Our mission is Keeping the Dornoch Story Alive and we do this by presenting Dornoch's incredible history through exciting permanent and temporary exhibitions, children's activities and guided walks. Our friendly staff are always on hand to help. The museum is fully accessible and we have car parking facilities on site.
Historylinks Museum is dedicated to the history of Dornoch. The permanent exhibition features the cathedral, feuding clans, the shameful burning of Scotland’s last alleged witch, the Sutherland Clearances and the treachery and violence of Picts and Vikings.
The temporary exhibitions change annually so there is always something new to see.
Children can try their hand at our quizzes, the Young Curators challenge and interactive puzzles. There is also viking dressing up!
Our popular films, The Dornoch Light Railway and Links Through History run on a loop throughout the day.
In fact, there is something for everyone at Historylinks including a relaxing garden area with picnic seating.
The museum is fully accessible and although dogs (except assistance dogs) are not allowed in the museum, we have a tie up area for them where staff can keep an eye out, together with a water bowl in the garden.
Guided historical walks of Dornoch run every Tuesday afternoon at 2pm throughout June, July and August at a cost of £5 per person with accompanied children free. Contact the museum to book.
